Destination...Manchester

Manchester is a distinctive and lively city, offering something to please everyone with its vibrant nightlife, amazing restaurants and wealth of cultural activities. The city has undergone extensive renovations in the last decade and has become one of the UK's most prominent cities.

While you're there, visit the National Football Museum, where you can explore the world's finest collection of football artefacts and archives in one of football's greatest cities. Or try the People's History Museum, charting the history of the struggle for equality and democracy in the UK, perfectly reflecting Manchester's radical roots.

And a trip to Manchester isn't complete without popping into the Manchester Cathedral, housing a gorgeous interior with the best late medieval woodwork in the north - the spire and the ceiling are splendid and full of life.

Then, indulge in some of the city's best shopping, absorbing both vast shopping centres and the smaller local markets. Visit The Arndale Centre for your high street favourites, or head to the Northern Quarter, where you can get anything from vintage clothes shops to independent record and book stores, and edgy fashion labels to quirky gift shops.

  • Manchester Town Hall & Albert Square: 10min / 900m by foot
  • John Rylands Library: 15min / 1.2km by foot

Taste

Just for you: 2 Complimentary Cocktails

Velvet Bar

A real destination venue, Velvet bar pulls in the pre and post restaurant customers as well as the after-work drinkers and hotel residents.  This sumptuous bar has an impressive & extensive cocktail list and a prime pitch for canal-side drinking when the sun's out.

Velvet Restaurant
Throughout the past decade and then some, Velvet restaurant’s popularity has continued to increase, with a mixed clientele of locals and visitors to the city co-mingling to create an inclusive ambience. A warm and friendly welcome awaits, once you have taken the ‘walk of faith’ over the glass fish tank cleverly set into the entrance stairs. 

The Restaurant matches its memorable design features with a combination of excellent food and eclectic music style and is open throughout the day for a soup and sandwich lunch, small plate selection, a pizza or a twist on classic British comfort food.  Weather permitting, customers also have the choice to dine al fresco, canal-side.
